I am grateful to Dr. Marianne M Gilchrist for the following information:
This is Stephen Flynn (more correctly, Flinn), my maternal great-uncle. He was born in Wortley-in-Bramley in 1889, the third (second surviving) son of Walter Flinn (1857-1908) and his wife Annie, née Todd (1863-1931). The family had moved to Hull c. 1904, after living in Glasgow for a few years (my grandmother, Annie, was born there in 1901). Walter, originally from West Bromwich, was killed in an accident at William Wright Dock in 1908 (run over by a crane), which made the front page of the HDM, 11/09/1908.
Their Hull home address was 55 Strickland Street.
